About the Course

***2nd August 2020***

I am sorry to announce that the Cambridge Dementia Course will not be running in 2020. 

I had hoped that we would be able to offer a virtual event this year as a replacement for our usual residential course, but the amount of work required is simply too much for us to deliver an acceptable event by December. We don’t employ a professional course organiser – the course is arranged by me & my co-organisers Clare Galton & Tim Rittman in our spare time, together with Penny our indefatigable course secretary. Clare, Tim & I are currently fully occupied with delivering frontline Covid recovery plans at Addenbrooke’s & our regional hospitals, with very little time left over, and I have therefore decided that we will not run the course this year to allow us to properly relaunch the course in a virtual format in 2021.

I am sorry for the disappointment this will cause.

With best regards

Dr Andrew Graham
Course Director
